Art and science are as diverse as two things can be. One is more mechanical, the other more mystical – but in the twenty-first century, which is which? This show will feature artwork that depicts the two very different – but very connected – concepts of art and science.

ABOUT THE JUROR
Kryn Olson, Artist and Science Teacher
Juror for Art & Science, 2013
Studying simultaneously both the sciences and the arts throughout her schooling, Kryn Olson earned her Masters Degree from Stony Brook University in the sciences. She created her thesis based on Teaching Science through the Arts. She studied painting and printmaking earning her a BFA in Michigan, with a double major in both Biology and Chemistry. She has developed the science curriculum, along with building a greenhouse and surrounding gardens for the Sag Harbor School District. She has been a mentor for the after school Science Club for the last 15 years. A passionate naturalist, Kryn has explored and studied ecosystems all over the world. She combines her field experiences, education and excitement for life to create paintings that reflect how and what she experiences. Kryn has shown both with the Parrish Art Museum in “Artists Choose Artists” and also at the Guild Hall Museum’s “East End Ten” exhibit. She now shows exclusively with the Peter Marcelle Gallery in Bridgehampton and with the Gerald Peters Gallery both in NYC and Santa Fe, NM.
Kryn describes her own process: “I witness and observe life, internalizing it through all of my senses. I use my head and my gut, so that when I go to put an experience onto the canvas it is rearranged, recombined. As in history, my paintings are created layer upon layer—paint, concept, paint, and so on until the cycle of the conceptual issue is worked through and the final image is defined. I record moments, the beauty of a time witnessed. They are always as I experienced them—in color, filled with line and form.”
Programs of the East End Arts Gallery are made possible with public funding provided by the New York State Council of the Arts, Suffolk County, County Executive Steve Bellone, and the Town of Riverhead.
